I'm pretty sure Stalin was already creamated and its his ashes that are interred in the Kremlin wall.

This is an interesting and comprehensive review of the Alexander Palace today.  Definately worth the time if you have an interest in the restored Alexander Palace.

And I should have added, I'm about 2/3's way through this book.  As usual Greg and Penny have taken a complex subject and brought it to the masses with much thought and analysis.  This book is a keeper and a must have for anyone who wants to truly understand the web that surrounded this bizzare women.  Thanks to both of them and here's hoping that there is another Romanov book swimming around in their minds as we speak...

I would take slight exception with the murder of the Grand Duchesses not having any political purposes...  Killing Olga, even though according to the Pauline Laws she couldn't inherit the throne, added to the chaos of no clear Romanov being able to remount the throne.  In the middle of the revolution, I could see the white army surrounding her as figure head and perhaps heir - especially after Nicholas, Alexi and Michael were dead.  I don't think there was any love of Kirill and she while a romantic figure, the rest of the family might have surrounded this smart and sensitive girl.  Complete conjecture, I agree but a possibility I believe none the less.  And I am sure it factored into the thinking of the thugs who decided all their fate.
